Το Ελληνικό Ναυτικό του Αγώνα/Greek Mariners in the Freedom Struggle

Στην Εθνεγερσία του 1821 έπαιξε πολύ σημαντικό ρόλο το τότε Ναυτικό των Ελλήνων που συγκροτήθηκε κυρίως από εμπορικά πλοία της εποχής δίνοντας πλεονέκτημα στους επαναστατημένους Έλληνες. 

Following the end of the Russian Turkish war of 1768, the Treaty of Küçük Kaynarca signed in 1774 allowed Greek merchant marine vessels to be armed for protection against pirate attacks and to sail under the Russian flag. This treaty transformed a rather insignificant fleet into a major shipping player especially during the Napoleonic wars when Greek shop owners profited enormously by carrying goods to France. In 1821, Greek mariners have a big number of ships, guerilla naval warfare experience, capital, and guns and are ready to transform their fleet into a fighting force.   Hellenic forces primarily from Hydra, Spetses, Psara, and Kasos brake blockades and prevent naval transport of land troops, and find ingenious and daring ways to attack major vessels of the line of the Ottoman fleet. In this event, we will present this major saga with the help of the Division of History of the Hellenic Navy.

Arkadi - Alamo - The stars of Freedom

The heroic resistance of the Texan American people at the Alamo Monastery and of the Cretan Greek people at the Arkadi Monastery against the superior military forces of a tyrannic oppressor state in the 19th century transformed these two sites into a perpetual commemorative symbol of both nations' struggle for freedom.
